Every day, I receive emails from Urban Junkies and Daily Candy alerting me to what’s going on in London. Both claim to provide “insider information” of what is hot, new and undiscovered. They’re good sources of information and they don’t claim to be writing reviews, just letting you know what’s going on. But for the last two days, they have covered the same restaurant openings.
“Shadenfreude” was my first emotion. Here are two internet publishing initiatives with significant resources (well at least by my sole proprietor standards) with lots of paid advertising and even some aristocratic connections ( the Editor of Daily Candy is related to the Duke of Norfolk) and they can only manage to turn out copy cat restaurant openings. There’s hope for us little guys yet. Watch this space.
